Broker’s Comments

TestaCuroraRace is a well upgraded example of the popular Cookson 50 racing yacht. With the canting keel and a relatively narrow water line, she is competitive in all conditions and wind angles.

She has the upgraded rig, taller than standard and increased canting angle on the keel.

The Canard is set up to twist slightly for ultimate upwind performance.

In her current owner ship she has also increased the draft of the keel to keep the righting moment the same, but decrease the displacement of the yacht, to give better performance in the light and downwind.

Further developments are to increase the bowsprit length slightly. The USP of the yacht is her constant optimization to be arguably the best Cookson 50. With a recent refit including a paint job, she also is looking the part.

Standing rigging is all in date, EC6 of course.

Owner’s Comments

The Cookson 50 is one of the most iconic ocean racing sailing yachts ever built. The design has its name on all of the world’s most prestigious trophies and will continue to do so. TestaCuoreRace is a rather fitting name for the yacht and she has seen a very thorough programme of maintenance and upgrades over the past 2 years, with a very strong sail wardrobe, upgraded canting angle and bulletproof hydraulics. A real turnkey option for the serious competitor for the world’s offshore circuit.

Design Specification

Designed by Farr Yacht Design, the Cookson 50 is a production boat made by Cookson’s yard. In respect to a standard boat, the interior has been modified to allow better sail handling – by cutting away the original kitchen positioned in the center of the boat and replacing it with a smaller one on the side. In addition, two hatch closures have been built to separate the lazarette from the living area, for safety reasons, in case of failure of the rudder.
